A Unique Instant Play Slot From Microgaming

Around the World In Eighty Days is an extremely popular novel by Jules Verne. The hero Phileas Fogg races against time to complete a journey around the world to win a bet. Microgaming has captured the spirit of the novel in its online slot game titled Around the World. It is available on the instant play platforms of all Microgaming online casinos like Royal Vegas, Platinum Play and 7 Sultans.

The reels are set in a land slot machine console. The background to the reels displays iconic monuments from countries round the world. The symbols are designed like lithograph prints. Most of them depict various modes of communication that Fogg used in his fantastic journey, including some exotic ones. They are biplane, hot air balloon, ocean liner, train, Chinese junk, elephant and camel. The line payouts awarded are very low. The payouts for five like symbols range from 50 times to 300 times the line bet. The big payouts come from the wild symbols that also award line payouts. The Fogg wild symbol doubles payouts. Five of these symbols in an active payline award 10,000 times the line bet. The game logo wild symbol is not a multiplier and awards a top line payout of 5,000 coins. You can tell from the line payouts that Around the World online slot has a high variance. The wild symbols do not substitute for the special symbols.

The compass is the scatter symbol that awards payouts multiplied by the total bet. The base payout for three, four and five scatter symbols is 2, 10 and 25 times the total bet. Each compass that points to the north doubles the base payouts. So if you land five compass symbols and they all point north the payout will be 800 times the total bet.

The globe is the bonus symbol. Three or more globe symbols in an active payline trigger the Globe Bonus. You are first awarded payouts multiplied by the line bet depending on the number of bonus symbols in the trigger. You can collect the entire payout. You also have the option of wagering the payout, or half of it, in a gamble game called the Travel Game. You have to choose one of four routes around the world. You will then move on a map along your route using an appropriate mode of transport. If your liner sinks then you lose the staked payout. If you successfully complete the journey you win the staked amount randomly multiplied up to four times.
